    Default spinoff - How to find a good farm/horse/dog sitter?

    I know that I am going to need to have one or two good horse/house sitters on speed dial in case I have to travel for job interviews, so I'm looking for pointers on how to find them.

    I know word of mouth is probably best, but some of my neighbors are a bit over the top and won't give out their name in case they need them for themselves.

    Ask your vet and farrier. Good luck!

    Word of mouth from friends, vet, farrier, etc. for farm sitting. For pet sitting, other than recommendations, try looking at care.com... I pet/farm sit and that's the only website service that I use for finding clients (or for clients finding me). Some really great families have connected with me that way, I've found it to be a good, legitimate site (no weirdos so far). Good luck!

    I ended up with a vet tech after asking at my vets office!
